Nevertheless, we had the most dynamite individual pie brought to us by my new friends at Dizzy Cow Pizzeria.
I say friends because I chatted with them and explained what I was doing. They were very receptive as long I was being positive. How do you turn that down? When supporting local and anything with good intentions, finding the heart and the good is the way to go. More on that shortly.
Speaking of heart, St. Francis Neighborhood Center does a lot of good for the city of Baltimore. I’m grateful to know some of the folks behind the operation and helped them volunteer at their Resource Fair & Music Festival this past weekend. Links can be found here.
When I heard there would be food trucks I got the sense there’d be pizza. Now I’ve reviewed a few in the past (click here for more , over here, and wait up I got one more!) so you’d think I’d run out. This isn’t the case as food trucks are still a growing phenomenon. I figure there’s room for everybody as long as the food and service is quality.
I’m glad I got to try Dizzy Cow for the first time at this event. My first sight of them was at the Downtown Monument Lighting way back in December of last year. The event was a frenzy, and as I was about to order some pizza, and snap some photos, my phone died. It wasn’t meant to be. It was too hectic, so in hindsight this all worked out like it was supposed to.
A dear friend had ordered the cheese earlier, or as they charmingly title it, ‘Old faithful’, and it was a great starter. My friend pointed out, you always start with cheese. That’s a recurring sentiment. I knew I was in or something special.
Josh, the owner and operator could not have been more friendly. And his associate Matt, was just as helpful in suggesting the most amazing of pies on this most momentous of days.
I wanted something different from the menu. I wasn’t in the mood for meats or standard vegetables. Matt said his go to, if he was in the same frame of mind, would be the Frenchman, their house speciality. No hesitation on my part. The idea of honey, figs, and brie on a pie sounded awe-inspiring on the surface. And unique is always good. There’s plenty of weeks for your traditional pies.
It was so good that this had to be shared. I believe three or four folks helped me finished it. When I say it like that you might think I didn’t want any more. That wasn’t the case at all. This was tremendous. Honey and fig are two of the essentials I need more of in my life. And that brie mixed in with the mozzarella, you’ve got to be kidding me. Neither cheese got lost by the other. But I could always use more brie. Mozzarella isn’t going anywhere. I’m at the verge of drooling as I write this. Where can I find some more? And that soft yet slightly (done to perfection) crisp crust was perfect for this day.
I didn’t miss the tomato sauce at all.
For my pizza pals in the Baltimore area, here is a list of where they’ll be on a weekly basis.
And finally here is their catering and contact information. A user friendly and simple website speaks volumes by the way. Their amazing pies do all the talking it needs to. I can’t wait to try them again, whether by chance or some other universal alignment.
I’m hungry now.
Take good care,
